Daventry Town welcomes Spirit of Christmas & Lantern Parade

Posted: Mon, 11 Dec 2017 15:52 by Sophie

On Friday 8th December the Spirit of Christmas arrived in Daventry, along with the snow.

Those who braved the weather, enjoyed a variety of free activities including rides on a ferris wheel, a carousel, face-painting, a nativity photo booth and donkey rides. Then there was the magical and enchanting Santa's grotto and meeting Santa, an experience that touched the hearts of everyone who met him.

The evening ended with the Lantern Parade, led by Santa, winding his way through the Town, followed by children carrying their beautiful lanterns, crunching through the year's first snow fall.

The parade ended in Bowen square with a fantastic performance by the Daventry Players who, in spite of the wintery weather, sang Christmas songs to a delighted audience.

So a big thank you to all who made the event possible and to all those who braved the weather and joined in the fun.
